At first we were surprised at the price per person, but learned that you can come back the next day for free if you show your receipt. Inside you'll find a small and well-developed museum area with stuffed wolves, bears and other small wild creatures....More

If you like informational stops, this is a must. You'll learn a lot about the animals through the different displays. If you would rather do anything other than learn, you should still stop and see the live animals. They have 7 bears with interesting personalities...More

The animals are outdoors, yes. But, they have indoor viewing stations. There is a small warming hut where you can watch the bears. And in a different building, a room with huge windows allows you to watch the wolves.
